Picture a gorgeous summer day at an outdoor concert venue, thousands of friendly people, good vibes and a stage with a number of upbeat bands playing all day long. While that all seems wonderful enough to begin with, let us add in the fact that all of those people are there for FREE.
Plot twist: This picture is actually a reality and has been every single summer since 2010. Crazy, right? The only way that has been made possible is because of Radio 104.5, Philadelphia’s hub of modern rock and alternative music. For six years now, people of all ages have been welcomed to spend one Sunday a month from May to September in Philadelphia at free alternative music-centered concerts. Radio 104.5 calls this their yearly “Summer Block Party” series.
